Anyone Remember Atari!?

Atari 1200XL

Before the iPod Touch, Playstation series, and Xbox - even before the Sega Genesis and Nintendo Entertainment System - there was the Atari 2600. Many of you older gamers out there learned about video games - and then computers - from Atari's arcade games and home console.

The founder of Atari (as well as Chuck E Cheese) is a man by the name of Nolan Bushnell. Currently, Bushnell is working on a book called "Finding the Next Steve Jobs" - in reference to Apple Co-Founder (and previous Atari employee) Steve Jobs. Today is his 70th birthday.

Even though Atari has fallen on hard times and has been bought and sold a few times, it is still technically around. The attached image is of the Atari 1200XL which was one of Atari's line of home computers in the early 1980's.
